Crooked Bridge (Kriva Cuprija), Mostar

4.4
Crooked Bridge (Kriva Cuprija) was designed and built as a test model for the construction of the bigger and more famous Old Bridge. The Turks built the model to see whether a bridge with such a semicircular stone arch could withstand loads. The bridge was mentioned for the first time in the endowment of a wealthy merchant, Cejvan Cehaja, in 1558, which means that it was built at least eight years before the Old Bridge. Climb the stone steps on either side of the bridge and walk over its cobblestoned path. The arch is a perfect semicircle measuring 8.56 m (28 ft) wide and 4.15 m (13.6 ft) tall. Floods destroyed the bridge in 2001, but it was rebuilt on the initiative of UNESCO.

  • We found this one by accident while looking for a way down to the riverbank to catch a photo of Stari Most. A pretty little bridge surrounded by old stonework, bars, restaurants and lots of trees.  more »
  • Curved bridge just as mostar bridge although it is not known who built in the former but when kada mostar bridge employee who has previously made for the material handling later drops out of sight is as accurate as var.ne rumors I don't know though if you go to the local police escorted us walk across the bridge to the right hosts and passed after the Ottoman mosque in the village of yourself you feel cute hobbit of stone you will find in the neighborhood.
